ABSTRACT
In this study, frozen yoghurt containing free and encapsulated Lactobacillus casei (Lc-01) and Bifidobacterium lactis (Bb-12) were manufactured. The physicochemical properties, organoleptic characteristics and survival of Lactobacillus casei and Bifidobacterium lactis were monitored during the product's storage for 150 days at -18 °C and under simulated gastrointestinal condition. The viable cell number of Lactobacillus casei and Bifidobacterium lactis in the free state in frozen yoghurt mixture was 4.7x 108 and 5x 108 CFU/g at the day of production, and after 150 days of storage, these numbers were decreased to 4.5x106 and 3.5x106 CFU/g, respectively. These data for encapsulated bacteria was 7.3 x 108 and 9.1 x 108 CFU/g at the day of production and at the end of survey it decrease to 8.6x107 and 9.6x107 CFU/g. Probiotocs survival in simulated gastrointestinal condition was also improved with encapsulation. In general, encapsulation can significantly increase the survival of probiotic bacteria in frozen yogurt over its shelf-life and in simulated gasterointestinal condition, but addition of inulin has not any improving effect on these two parameter. However, the addition of encapsulated probiotics and inulin had no significant effect on the sensory properties of frozen yogurt, but inulin improves viscosity and melting properties.
